That's it, I am half way through YTT already, another week that flew by...
Week 1 was about setting up solid foundations, making sure we could all differentiate our humerus was from our femur, as well as planting the seeds of yogic philosophy, so that we could start from the right foot, so to speak...
Week 2 was all about breaking down asanas, drill the YogaVida sequence into our head and starting practice teach. And guess what, it was not easy. The body started giving out and, of course, the mind too. Major resistance on my end, when it came to teaching in front of everybody: fear of public speaking and public mess-up, especially if I feel that I don't master my topic. So, I started feeling major push back from my left brain realizing memorizing the full sequence would require a lot of work... My left brain is lazy and always start putting up a fight with me when it is time to get work, even for the sake of something I am as passionate about as I am about yoga. Sure enough, as the week went by, I started understanding that it was not so much about memorizing the words as much as experiencing the practice in my own body and speaking it out loud over and over again. Practice makes perfect could not be more true and my synchronistic inspirational sources (aka. Facebook and yahoo) were all about that lately. Check out the 2 videos that landed my way last week, right on time...
